That doesn't explain:

House of Black Death
Mutant (1983)
Grave of the Vampire
The Satanic Rights of Dracula
Gorgo
Thirsty Dead (1973)

I have also seen the Tingler and Spider Baby here, and they are not PD.

The Spanish language versions of The Tingler (1959) listed here should be removed. As you wrote, they aren't PD:

Type of Work: Motion Picture
Registration Number / Date: RE0000329901 / 1987-02-25
Renewal registration for: LP0000014627 / 1959-10-01
Title: The Tingler. By Columbia Pictures Corporation.
Copyright Claimant: Columbia Pictures Industries, Inc. (PWH)

Variant title: The Tingler.
Names: Columbia Pictures Corporation.
Columbia Pictures Industries, Inc.

The other copy listed is in the blip.tv section where copyrighted movies can be posted.

The discussion in this thread leaves the copyright status of Spider Baby (1968) in question, though I tend to believe Video-Cellar, who unlike me is rarely in error.

Why is blip.tv exempt from copyright restrictions?

I have no idea. Wonder about that, too.

A previous thread that sheds a little light (though not the full light of day) on bliptv's odd status.

House of Black Death (1965) would be PD only if the film doesn't contain a proper copyright notice.
============================================
Mutant (1984) contains a proper notice, and isn't PD.
============================================
Grave of the Vampire (1974) is already here and is PD.
============================================
The Satanic Rights of Dracula (1973) isn't PD.
============================================
Gorgo (1961) isn't PD.
============================================
The Thirsty Dead (1973) is PD.

Are you sure about Satanic Rights and Gorgo?

I saw House of Black Death, is here as Blood of the Man Devil.

What about another film here called Face of The Screaming Werewolf (aka La Casa Del Terror) 1959? I didn't see a label on it saying it is PD.
I think it's made by the same guy who made Blood of the Man Devil.

I'm as sure as I can be. No copyright lawyers help us here. If you plan on using any movie posted to IA commercially, it would be wise to check with one beforehand.

In the description of the copy of Blood of the Man Devil (1965) here, it says that it contains an invalid notice.

The copies of Face of The Screaming Werewolf (1959) should be removed. The movie isn't PD.
